COURSE DESCRIPTION

Somerford’s courses will be designed by Andrew Heffernan and built by the Somerford Team they will be following the same route with some changes to all courses.

The flowing Cross Country courses run over permanent undulating grassland around the old Somerford Park Estate, and are designed in traditional style to encourage bold riding with man-made take-offs and landings; every effort is made to ensure good going with all courses dressed to create a championship feel. The courses are progressive and designed to educate & encourage horse and rider.

For XC course and event updates please 'like' the Somerford Park Farm facebook page. 

Dressage is located on level ground within the permanent 80-acre showground. The SJ and warm-up will be on the Andrews Bowen surface. Visit  www.somerfordpark.co.uk
